I would have thought things like the wing root fairings might involve epoxy and a lot more putzing around
With a completed RV-14 as an example, if the wings were removed for transport how long would it take to re-assemble and be ready for flight?
A week or less? Yes, with a helper or two to assist with the heavy lifting. The wing root fairings are aluminum and (assuming you're already fabbed them) will have to be trimmed to final fit, then drilled and dimpled plus installing the nutplates. Probably 2-4 hours per side including the nutplates.
Putting wings back on a completed -14? A weekend. Maybe less if you're organized.
